SPCA moves to make cat declawing a procedure of the past
The BC SPCA is calling on the College of Veterinarians of British Columbia to enact a ban on declawing cats.
Dr. Emilia Gordon, senior manager of animal health for the BC SPCA says declawing a cat does not just remove the nails, it removes bones of the toes, comparable to amputating all of a human’s fingers at the last knuckle.
But, she says, there are other complicating factors….
The Veterinary Medical Association in Nova Scotia has voted to ban feline declawing, but so far, it’s the only province to do so.
